Sad Grrrls Festival



With a super-strong line-up featuring the likes of Jaala, Jess Riberio, Camp Cope and a whole many more, Sad Grrrls Club are bringing the goods in their second festival and first outing in Melbourne.

Sad Grrrls Fest is all about celebrating gender diversity, so each act has at least one non-male (female, non-binary or gender-non-conforming) member. It unfortunately sold out quickly but beg, borrow or ask kindly to find a ticket because it’s going to be a great day at the Reverence Hotel.

Fortunes and Shouse are playing support, and in a miraculous twist of fate there are still tickets left (at the time of writing). Get on it.
